I use my table saw mostly for making picture frames as a hobby. When I
need two sides @ 45 miters the same length, 30 inch or longer, what can
I use for a stop to make them the same? Any replies apppreciated. Thank
A block of wood clamped to the fence? You don't say what you're using
to run the pieces through, like a sled or a mitre guage, or tilting the
blade or whatever. There's a wealth of knowledge in the archives of
this newsgroup, too. Check it out. Tom

I've only seen it once, but a guy I knew had a cast iron [really well
made] setup. He ran it along the miter guide slot, turn it a notch
for the other piece and they fit every time. They didn't have to be
bang on, just bang on with each other to form 90 degrees.
1. Got to this site:
http://www.in-lineindustries.com/single_dubby.html and buy the item you
2. Take your existing mitre guage and melt it down.
3. Sell that to a scrap dealer. You will never use it again.

I cheat. I cut each side slightly longer than I need. I pair them and
fasten them together I then trim each pair to the proper lenght, remove
the fasteners and place them on the oposite sides. I use to use small
nails but find that staples work just as well and don't leave as big of
holes in the frame.
I use a square miter gauge as found at Rockler with an extended face.
